New anti-stress visualization: Whenever I get really anxious and stressed, I imagine myself like a lovely phoenix (the fire bird) rising from the ashes.
Donâ€™t laugh. It works.
In other news:
I have an AllieBar habit. Perhaps if I fly over to Allieâ€™s house and beg her for the recipe, sheâ€™ll take pity on this hungry birdie?
And delicious was fast, simple, and delicious. It was fast because I used some pre-cut produce, bagged lettuce, and pre-cooked tofuâ€¦ not the most financially sound dinner, but certainly easier!
I roasted some butternut squash pieces + Brussel sprouts to make a lovely warm salad.
In the mix:
- Spring greens
- Butternut squash
- Brussel Sprouts
- BBQ tofu (Trader Joeâ€™s pre made kind)
- Sprinkle of chia seeds
The chia seeds were a great addition â€“ no real flavor, just a little crunch. And a healthy dose of those all-important Omega 3â€™s!
Just goes to show that chia seeds arenâ€™t just for cereals, yogurt, and smoothies.
In honor tonightâ€™s wonderfully unique dinner, how about a GIVEAWAY?
ChiaSeedsDirect.com, which is a provider of high-quality, lower-cost chia seeds (with free shipping for US residents!), offered to give one lucky Healthy Tipping Point reader a FREE two-pound bag of chia seeds!
I totally understand that chia seeds are the kind of thing you might not buy until you can try first (I had them at Kathâ€™s and then jumped on a bag), so I thought this was a perfect giveaway! And trust me â€“ you should try chia seeds! They are amazing (Vegan Overnight Oats, anyone?).
To enter to win the bag of chia seeds, simply leave a comment with your #1 stress relieverâ€¦ is it running? Yoga? Coffee? Pretending youâ€™re a mythical bird on fire? Let me know! (Open to US and Canadian residents only). Iâ€™ll pick the winner tomorrow night.
